The number of operators is of five technicians, which replaced the control of the airport and are responsible for the management of air movement from the unique daily flights between la Gomera and Tenerife (roundtrip).

Proposed sects life was filled with vivid ideological content and, more importantly, in exchange for a simple and understandable rituals and modest material offering, offered zdrove, filled with happiness and higher meaning of life. In short, everything that so short of them neophytes in the harsh reality of post-Soviet life. In a rapidly sprawling environment preachers living deities, wooden idols of wood and at least live there quietly messiahs structures have significant financial capacity and political support from abroad. In such sects actively involved managers and key experts of defense enterprises, academics, scientists. Any attack on the sect itself fought off an unexpected fury, the active use of their congregations – and fully processed controlled cannon fodder. Interestingly, the sectarianism, in the form in which it appeared in the post-Soviet Russia of the 1990s. It was purely a product of the West, exploiting the desire of man trying to think away from the plant life of the consumer and find the answers to the eternal question for any religion. Cultivated in the West, individualism and obsession to stand out from the gray mass of the same members of the community (neighbors, colleagues, fellow-travelers in transport, etc.) is extremely simplified the very possibility of the appearance of various sektanstkih societies.
